Are we followers of Jesus, or merely his admirers?
Day: April 4, 2020
Special guest, The Rev. Hannah Wilder, joins in to discuss the story of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem
“This moment, when many are dying and we are all afraid, is precisely when the people of God need the Eucharist to be celebrated. Easter needs to happen. And if people are not able to be physically in the church, they are comforted and strengthened by being able to open a link and see the celebration of the Easter Feast in their churches. In classic Anglican fashion we need not split hairs about exactly what sort of participation this amounts to. We can agree that the people are gathered, that Christ is present, and that we have the blessed assurance that Christ our Passover is still, always and at all times, sacrificed for us.”
“No, I don’t think God sent this COVID-19 to punish us for our evildoings, although it is showing us where evil, greed, and bragging has gotten us.”
